Question about 2002 Ford Taurus

Open Question

Car starts from cold, but if it rests for 15 to 20 minutes and I go to start it again I am unable to start it. I get no turnover noise at all. After several attempts over 5 to 10 minutes, it eventually starts. What's wrong?

My Audi A4 2009 makes a rattling noise on cold starts which resolves in less than 30 seconds. Dealer says its an air pump. This doesn't seem correct. The noise comes from the front of the care. Does not...


READ THIS (happy ending so far...):
audi a4 2L turbo quattro, manual transmission with 98,000 KM. Perfect conditions, no oil leaks whatsoever.

Left the car off for two weeks in very cold weather (-10C down to -25C). When I restarted, it started immediately but with heavy rattling noise due to camshaft adjuster not getting enough oil pressure. After 3 minutes of warming up (outside temp.: -12C) at very low rpm (below 2,000rpm), I start moving the car. Still hearing heavy rattle noise. As soon as I pass 2,000 rpm, I get a scary red warning, low oil pressure. Turn off the engine immediately. In 1 minute, I re-start the car and the engine lights check ok, so I drive in first gear super slow (1,200rpm) hearing the same rattling noise. After another minute, finally the noise all the sudden disappears and the car starts running just fine.

Called Audi dealer and they told me that in extreme weather conditions, I should warm the engine for 10-15 minutes if necessary before start moving.
Take away: luckily, I didn't screw up the engine since I was using it at extremely low rpm (easy to do with clutch and manual transmission) until the oil reached full pressure. I am pretty sure now that the problem was leaving the car off for such a long time in freezing weather. All the oil flows back to the bottom, and when I restarted it, the cold oil with high viscosity took a long time to reach all the parts of the engine, specially the camshaft adjusters that are actuated by using oil pressure. Next day, the car started at -9C perfectly without making any noise (as usual). Basically, the longer you leave your audi in cold weather, the longer you might hear the rattling noise until the oil reach full pressure inside the engine. My car took 6 minutes to fix it after couple of weeks in cold weather. This makes sense to me; in fact, in the past I only heard the rattling noise after leaving the car off for a couple of days in the winter.
So far, this has had an happy ending....

My car won't start and doesn't sound like its trying to start theres a huming noise but it won't turn over. it was cold but it had started and worked fine the night before. why won't it start?


If the noise is coming from your starter, it's possible that the starter drive is not engaging. This can happen if the starter solenoid is either frozen or binding inside. In that case, the starter motor will turn but the bendix drive is not being pushed into the flywheel. If frozen, most often if you allow the starter to spin for a minute, then give it a short rest, then try again, most times it will work. if the solenoid has failed, you can replace it separately or replace the starter as a unit.
Before doing anything though you need to verify the source of the noise as well as checking that the battery has proper voltage and that both terminals are clean and secure.

Starting problem with 1995 VW Golf TDi


if there is a clicking noise, its probably the solenoid on the starter. that unit pushes the starter motor forward and also connects the live of the starter.

This only happens when the Car is Cold???? It is the Exhaust Manifold. You need to Replace the Exhaust Manifold Gasket and check the Rest for Tightness.
